Zooey Deschanel is getting an apology after her name accidentally appeared last week in a closed-captioning fail broadcast during Fox's coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing manhunt.

Kansas-based company Caption Solutions issued a statement yesterday to apologize to the New Girl star for the snafu.

According to the New York Daily News, the captioner "deeply regret[s]" accidentally typing her name during the broadcast (the exact phrase that appeared on the screen was "Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel").

Caption Solutions President Kala J. Patterson says they "sincerely apologize for this error."

When the snafu happened last Friday, Deschanel retweeted Joel McHale and radio show producer Peter Ogburn's original postings, which read, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL! "@joelmchale: Oh my RT @peterogburn: pic.twitter.com/F3sbpmq9WO."
